SHAMOKIN — A stack of 72 folders representing blighted properties within the City of Shamokin were organized next to Cpl. Bryan Primerano as he spoke Tuesday of the police department’s efforts to bring justice to those who repeatedly violate code ordinances.

“These are our active cases right now we’re working on,” he said. “Of those, 27 are top priority — the properties that are dangerous or collapsing.”
